Thanks Teacher


Hello this is Terri from www.scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com. Where oh where has the year gone. I can't believe it's JUNE already. I must admit I almost missed the post for today - as the month totally got away from me.

So we all know I love love love playing with vinyl. So a few months back before school was out for the summer I made these. My daughter went  2 years to the same preschool. While, I was a little nervous about her going 2 years ago my daughter's teachers put me at ease. They were simple the BEST. They genuinely loved kids. So I wanted to make these fun flower pots for them as a HUGE thank you gift.
I used pots I found from Michael's. They were 50% off when I bought them.  The one teacher likes purple and other green/blue. So I thought these were perfect.
I cut the words from white vinyl. I used billionaire and welded the words together. The words are just over 1.12".
The saying, "Thanks for helping me grow". The teachers loved them so much.
I know it's a super quick and easy project but the result and gift was fantastic.
I kiss cut the vinyl by turning my blade to 3, pressure to 3, and speed to 3 or medium.
I then used washi tape to transfer the words to the flower pots.
And I leave you with my love of this fun little project. Lots of people know I love my Blackhawks. My hubby is a true Chicagoan - me a transplant Chicagoan (I grew up down state IL). I love watching hockey. My MIL a few years ago bought my daughter this hockey Jersey and I had to make a photo layout with it. I used PKS face on the little hockey girl. The  girl was made from paper dolls and she is 3". As you can see this is from 2010 -- so with them winning the STANLEY CUP I guess I should make another layout of her w/ a 2013 cup....
